The Maywood Station Museum is located at 269 Maywood Avenue, Maywood, New Jersey. Admission is free. Donations are welcome. The Maywood Station Museum is open to the public each year between April and December on selective dates. The museum is closed to the public during the months of January, February and March. Please visit our website at www.maywoodstation.com for a schedule of Museum Open House dates. The Maywood Station Museum is operated and staffed by the volunteer membership of the Maywood Station Historical Committee Division of the 501(c)3 non-profit New York, Susquehanna & Western Technical & Historical Society, Inc. The main focus of the museum is concentrated on the history of Maywood Station and the New York, Susquehanna & Western Railroad and the roles they played in the development of the Borough of Maywood and the surrounding area. The museum collection contains hundreds of photographs, displays, documents, maps and artifacts covering the histories of Maywood Station; the New York, Susquehanna & Western and local railroads; and the Borough of Maywood and the local region; which are changed periodically and designed to entertain and educate visitors of all ages as well as offer a virtual timeline to these subjects. Maywood Station is listed on the National Register of Historical Places and the State of New Jersey Register of Historical Places. In addition, the Maywood Station Museum is listed as a Historical Archive by the State of New Jersey. The Maywood Station Museum is also the official site of the New York, Susquehanna & Western Technical & Historical Society's archive, which contains thousands of drawings, maps, track diagrams, photos, timetables, documents and records covering the history of the New York, Susquehanna & Western Railroad. For those interested in historical buildings, meticulous care has been taken by the Maywood Station Historical Committee to show the museum in a historical context. The museum features the original woodwork painted and stained in its original colors and original Maywood Station furnishings have been restored and displayed such as the potbelly stove, station agent's desk, chairs, telegraph keys and freight scale. Victorian-period original light fixtures and sconces adorn the ceilings and walls. Additional items have been painstakingly reproduced to the exact original specifications of over one-hundred years ago including the station benches and bay window area. Have you ever wondered what the inside of an actual caboose looked like? The Maywood Station Museum has a caboose and visitors are invited to climb aboard Caboose 24542 and view additional displays and an operating model train layout. Also found on display on the station grounds is original 1942-built New York, Susquehanna & Western Alco S-2 diesel locomotive #206, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the State of New Jersey Register of Historical Places. Both NYS&W S-2 #206 and Caboose 24542 have been carefully restored by Maywood Station Historical Committee members. The Maywood Station Museum is also open by appointment for class trips, boys and girls scout trips, senior citizen trips and for other organizations and clubs as well as for movie and television filming, commercial props, photo shoots, etc. Please contact us for further information and available dates and times. In addition, other special events will be added to the above Museum Operating Schedule when appropriate. So, mark your calendar for the next Maywood Station Museum Open House date and prepare to take a trip back in time and see history and more. Admission is free. Donations are welcome. We hope to see you soon.

On this date 17 years ago on May 26, 2002, the Maywood Station Historical Committee was formed in an effort to save the threatened by demolition 1872-built New York, Susquehanna & Western Railroad Maywood Station in Maywood, NJ. Almost immediately, restoration work began by the all-volunteer group and a few weeks later they aligned with and became a division of the 501C3 non-profit New York, Susquehanna & Western Technical & Historical Society. The majority of the massive station restoration was completed in just over two years and the historic station opened to the public as a museum on September 25, 2004. In 2005, Caboose #24542 was added to the museum followed in 2008 by New York, Susquehanna & Western ALCO S-2 locomotive #206. Both Maywood Station and locomotive #206 are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The museum is open to the public on various dates each year between the months of April through December. The next museum open house date will be immediately following Maywood’s Annual July 4th Parade on Thursday, July 4, 2019 from 10am to Noon.
